Swing Trading Strategies

Swing trading is defined as a speculative trading activity in the financial markets where a tradeable asset (stock or option) is held for a period of time in an effort to profit from changes in the price, or SWINGS. Hold periods typically range from 2 days to 4 weeks.

At Warrior Trading, we consistently focus on a handful of reliable, high probability swing trading strategies with extra attention to our risk management.

We use a combination of options and equity strategies, short and long, to trade reversals, earnings events, gap fills, continuation patterns and breakouts. We use powerful and proprietary tools such as our Trade Ideas and TC2000 scanners, breaking news sources and chart analysis to identify high probability, short term setups that make for good swing trade candidates.

Once identified, these high probability setups are added to the daily watch list, and if subsequently alerted, all trades will be accompanied by pre identified entry prices, profit targets and stop losses.

Due to volatile market conditions, even the best swing trade setups can and will fail. We may go a couple days at a time before entering a new swing trade position. The reason for that is primarily for risk management. Simply identifying swing trade candidates is not enough to be profitable when trading them.

Understanding the underlying sector, broader markets, indices and any catalysts that may be in play are all critical components that require evaluation, independent of the trade itself. We help with the due diligence so that you can learn while watching real trade alerts play out in the markets.

We do NOT trade pump and dumps, OTC stocks, or low volume junk. We will trade liquid small, mid and large cap stocks, ETF’s and options. Our goal at Warrior Trading is to help YOU become a self-sufficient trader and take control of your own financial future!
